IBM A Smarter Planet
IBM is hiring bloggers to write articles for A Smarter Planet. A Smarter Planet provides thought-provoking content and a starting point to talk about the issues raised. You can see some of the content here and here. Topics they’re looking for include:
Smarter Cities: As populations grow at a fast clip, they are stressing our city infrastructures. Smarter transportation, policing, governance, and grids promise relief to urban areas.
Smarter Energy: With smarter grids, utilities can manage the flow of power through their systems. And consumers can manage their appliances and use of energy at the household level.
Smarter Healthcare: Using tools like electronic medical records, wireless computing devices and health support networks, innovators are making our systems smarter and more affordable.
Blogger Test Drives
An automaker is interested in providing vehicles for bloggers to test drive for a few days and to write about the experience. They’re not looking for auto bloggers, they’re looking for lifestyle bloggers who cover topics like travel, fine dining, and culture. They will arrange the drop-off and pick up of the vehicle.
